Yes, try the prefix method.

I use it with the following parameters:

max_prefix_matches: 9999
--> the maximum number of extentions ( if you set it to 2 it will only
fetch abc,abca, abcb )

--> if its left blank, it will always try to expand the search words

search_algorithm: exact:100 synonyms:30 prefix:0.5 endings:0.1
--> enable prefix match
